A lifelong New Rochelle resident, Douglas was also a former New Rochelle Police Officer. He graduated from the Westchester County Police Academy in 1986 and later in his career he returned as an Instructor. While at the New Rochelle Police Department he was a Patrol Officer and then a Field Training Officer where he organized training scenarios and assisted the departmental training unit with in-house employee training and education. He then became a Systems Manager for the departmental computer system and he collaborated with a network of computer systems managers involving numerous multi-state police departments and law enforcement agencies.

Before joining the Police Academy, Douglas attended Cathedral Preparatory Seminary in New York, NY and then Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception in Douglaston, Queens, New York where he received his B.A., Philosophy.

In his spare time Douglas loved bowling and was on several leagues in the area. He was also an avid wordsmith that worked many types of word puzzles and he spoke several languages. He also loved music of all kinds and played many instruments, including several when he and his siblings were leading the music for the Saturday evening services at Holy Family Church years ago.
